that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st

in the obama administration. and peter feaver served on the national security council staff during the george w. bush administration. he's now a professor of political science and public policy at duke university. we thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about w
president obama, one of the things he did at the start of this administration was invest in strengthening our alliances and partnerships that have brought the international community around this strategy. this isn't just u.s. strategy. this is a tremendous international effort to impose these sanctions. the iranian currency has lost tremendous value over the last several weeks. the sanctions are biting and the policy is moving us in the right direction. >> woodruff: peter feaver, i do want to turn to several different parts. maybe we can come back to iran in a minute. on iraq we heard governor romney say that president obama moved too abruptly to pull the troops out. what would governor romney do differently? how much longer wouldhe have left u.s. troops in iran? >> i think if romney had been president for the last four years he would have handled the negotiations with iraq very differently. he would have been personally involved. president obama delegated it. and refused to maintain the close relations with prime minister maliki that president bush had. he delegated it to vice president
have been foreclosed on during the bush administration, not the obama administration. i would love to talk about facts, but maybe you're just a little bit disingenuous on your backs. -- on your facts. guest: the word liar is a harsh word. we talked about trying to find commonality here. what i will say about it romney, having been around him a great deal, is a man of great faith and strong family and strong family values. if given the opportunity, i know he will leave the country with honesty and integrity. we might disagree with his policies. i disagree with the president and certainly some of his policies, but i certainly try not to question his motives or goals or why he does what he does. i would hope the voters would hope both sides can return stability to this process, and maybe not to be quite as divided. but fight, argue, in debate, but i hope it is fair at the end of the day and able to move forward as a country. host: republican on the line. supporter of mitt romney. -- robert hagan from ohio and jay hottinger, thank you for joining us. a month not to go. we're in early v
that they ought to be focusing on, the obama administration? >> well they have been and we know from scott rasmussen today that the consumer confidence over the weekend shot up and boom, the president's ratings have gone up overnight since yesterday they've gone up because of that jobs number. >> yeah, that is huge. i think the president will use that. joe biden will use it in the debate. but ultimately the president believes he will win with negative because he doesn't have is a record to run on or defend. dagen: does mitt romney need to sit back and hope the president just makes some huge error at this point? >> i think he's got to keep doing what he's been doing which is to be as john said positive on the campaign trail, dagen, but also make it clear there's an alternative approach to failed policies. dagen: how do you think wednesday shakes out? what are the odds you putting on biden making a huge gaffe because that's the reason people will watch frankly. >> better than even odds that he will say something that he shouldn't say that will be a news item. and i think seriously i think th
, on the anniversary of the cuban missile crisis. >> two counter-terrorism experts said the obama administration use of ground strikes may be undermining security objectives in places like yemen and pakistan. peter bird and and christopher swift discuss the move from partitive killings to signature strikes, which target groups ahead of men associated with terrorists. according to research, and grown strikes in pakistan have increased from one every 40 days during the bush administration to one every four days. this is from the center for national policy. >> good afternoon. my name is gregory aftandilian. i am a senior fellow for the middle east here at the center for national policy. on behalf of our chairman, and our president, i want to welcome all of you here today. i also want to welcome c-span for covering this event. the event is titled, "death from above." as many of you are aware, drone attacks started under the bush administration but have been accelerated under the obama administration. they seem to be the main weapon of the united states against al qaeda and its affiliates in pakistan. we
as republicans have accused the obama administration of failing to respond to greater security at the benghazi office. >>> with 90% of the votes counted, chavez receives 54% to 45% for his opponent enrique capriles. capriles was expected to be the president's greatest challenger. >>> in iraq, the government executes 11 men. the number of executions are being called terrifying. international advocates have raised concerns about the fairness of trials, the transparency of court proceedings and the rumor of forced confessions. >>> natural steel pipes are being buried in the ocean bed. if a large earthquake were to hit, they could be raised to 121 feet above the water to diffuse the energy of a tsunami. >>> the man accused of killing trayvon martin plans to file a defamation of character lawsuit against nbc. >> george called and reported a black person. somebody asked him to describe someone. but the way things were edited like by nbc and others made it sound otherwide. >> reporter: three employees of nbc or the nbc station lost their jobs because of the editing. zimmerman is currently free on jai
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
to do. >> with respect to the politics of this, are you saying that the obama administration misled because they were worried about the political considerations of what happened in benghazi? >> you have to ask why as recently as last night -- you're asking the judgment about motive. i don't know. as recently as last night the vice president of the united states misled and misinformed the american people for, i presume, political purposes. >> you just accused the president of lying to the american people. >> yes. >> i mean the intelligence was unclear. >> that's true. >> there's an investigation going on. honestly, there's no advantage for the administration to mislead the american people on something that is a tragedy like this. >> i wonder, though how much voters -- this is an important issue, certainly, and the administration should be held accountable, if they made misstatements. but how much is this election going to turn on foreign policy? jobs and the economy are still the number one issue. and this was a pretty fierce debate between biden and rya

, there has been some bipartisanship on east asia. so the obama administration after flirting with a dierent policyn 20 returned to an emphasis on asia that had been there in the previous administration. there was an emphasis that involved strengthening our alliances with japan and india and presenting to china a clear choice about we will cooperate if they play by the rules of the game, but we will also demand that they play by the rules of the game. that strategy, which obama came to rather late, has been the strategy that we followed in the past. that's the straty that wl follow inhe future. the problem with president obama's pivot to asia is not that he's focusing on asia. he's underresourced the visit to asia. the big difference between a second term for president obama and a romney administration would be that romney's pledge to beef up the u.s. navy, which is the key service of interest to strengthen our position in asia. i think that's an important difference. >> woodruff: what about that resource question, michelle flour foi? noy. >> i think it requires reinvestment in the relation
.s. and israel, that too is false. and the obama administration repeatedly emphasizes that it is committed to israel's security. we're back with more steph after the break. join us. ♪ unleashed. joy behar. >> on my next show, robert klein can't stop his leg, gilbert gottfried can't stop his mouth and i can't stop laughing long enough to ask a question.

will tell you first of all, i think it's a very bad path for the obama administration to go down and also the democrat party. when you think about we still have a lot of questions unanswered about libya, when you have a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before that attack occurred. so, i don't think that they should be throwing around the word liar too often, but it's kind of like in a football game when you get taken out behind the wood shed and shellacked pretty bad, blaming the referees or blaming that the grass was too high or the other team cheated. you have to accept the fact that you got beat en. swacked, can you-- >> that's a sec football kind of word that you can use. stuart: all right, congressman. and i've got another topic for you, the vice-presidential debate i
in the world did this happen? >> well, it is just another in the long line of gifts that the obama administration handed out to electric vehicles, batteries that are supposed to run them and the chargers. it's a big failure. there are six car companies that got loan guaranties in the billions of dollars. ford got 5.9 billion, nissan got 1.4 billion. they gave grants to battery companies, a number of them up in michigan. either they have gone bankrupt like enter 1 in indiana went bankrupt about a year ago. lglg chem we're talking about. another one in michigan, a123 systems which got 249 million. >> that is the exact same story. we're talking about this other company, compact power. you're bringing up a12, another battery manufacturer. got millions of dollars in taxpayer dollars and now another failed company. when i hear these stories i think about one moment from the debate. let's listen to that and talk about it on the other side. >> don't forget you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind, solyndra and fisker and tesla and ener 1. i have a friend that
the obama administration manipulated the numbers. but on cnbc, labor secretary hilda solis called that claim "ludicrous" and defended the bureau of labor statistics. >> you know, i'm insult when i hear that, because we have a very professional civil service organization where you have top, top economists that work at the b.l.s. >> brown: the employment numbers landed as the campaigns put up new ads attacking each other on jobs and taxes. >> president obama says he's creating jobs. but he's really creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in u.s. history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed, much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money; he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because, according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him he
of the obama administration officials to condemn the attack and mourn the death of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans but as the state department has weathered the republican-led criticism of the warning signs before the september 11th attack, clinton has been invisible. clinton will not appear the oversight hearing on the libya attack where they've said they will question the state department security preparations and the administration's account of the attack. the state department plans to the interest in their career with other officials. ahead of the hearing they provided new details about the attack or asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the same assault. and as we read in the "the washington times" earlier, the report that the state department according to them took away any claims that this attack was due to the protest about that video to read that is the front page of the "the washington times" this morning. they also in case you are interested include a brief chronology of the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya if
're going it try to find those people who we can help with weapons, which is what the obama administration is doing. on the top line, he talks this big, strong, big stick game but he doesn't really seem to have a clue about how you would even do that in real life. >> he also -- >> steve i have to get to something dishonest here. i think everybody agreed with your hawk, middle of the road, or a dove, you will agree this is dishonesty here. in the two-state solution it's different what he says in public and behind closed doors to backers. here was romney today sounding reasonable, in fact, consistent with u.s. policy. let's take a look. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. on this vital issue, the president has failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> ear here he is in may at tha
is to fill the blank of what the obama administration wants to do the next four years and not only policies but an energy and passion to win and do those things. finally probably he has to use the medicare issue with a ryan plan. the romney/ryan plan, is it politically unpopular? he has to bring that up. >> woodruff: how do you see it, mark? >> i would say with paul ryan, he's got to keep it going. the republicans are on a roll right now, they feel they're on a roll. but he should heed the council of robert frost to john kennedy who said be more boston and less harvard. i would say be more wisconsin more walk shaw than washington, d.c. he cannot give in words his powerpoint if he mentions sequestration oncetor committee as a whole or the motion to recommit eyes will glaze over he's got to stay on offense but at the same time he has to par tri differences between him and governor romney and especially changes that governor romney -- several incarnations that have gone to is going to parry that, not to get into the weeds but parry it. as far as joe biden, i think he's got a tougher but in man
to get to his house three blocks away to call for help. >>> happening today, the obama administration will issue a warning to anyone whose car air bags have been replaced in the past few years. that's because hundreds of thousands of counterfeit air bags may have been installed. the national highway traffic safety administration ran tests on the counterfeit air bags. they say they don't inflate properly. today transportation officials released a list of dozens of vehicle models that have counterfeit air bags available on the market. they say anyone who has had an air bag replaced over the past three years by a repair shop other than a new car dealership could be at risk. >>> the time is 5:20. the federal government is going after wells fargo. it's suing the bank, claiming it lied about the quality of thousands of loans so they'd be eligible for federal loan insurance. the government is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars the federal housing administration paid out after homeowners defaulted on their wells fargo mortgages. >>> a massachusetts town may be cursing the state's attorne
with us. before we started our interview, you said the obama administration has to stop the bloodletting or as you said bedwetting. that's the onerous on joe biden tomorrow because the president's performance was not good. >> it wasn't good. not that mitt romney beat president obama -- i'm not sure if he did, but barack obama did not look good last week. what vice president biden has to do is stop the bleeding. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the
kagan recused herself from the case, working on it as a lower level as the obama administration solicitor general. the key could lie again with justice anthony kennedy. sandy, columbus, ohio, a democrat there. what do you think? gcaller: first of all, i would like to hear the make up and see the makeup of the total top-10 that were expected when she was denied because we so often have not only racial problems, we can have gender problems as well. so before we get into affirmative-action and how we as black people or white people are the minorities, we are not able to have a fair shot into getting that college. also, listening to the case, they may need to reform the age of how they except college students. host: here is a graphic that was in "the wall street journal" yesterday. the racial-ethnic makeup of the university of texas undergraduate student body. can see the make up there in 2010. 2007, over 50% white. you can see that number going down in 2011, less than 50% white, asians, hispanics, blacks making up more of the student body. guest: i see. host: union bridge, maryland
me to finish. it appear that's the obama administration is working with muslim brotherhood and al ga q dan the mideast to systematically eliminate the regimes in all the countries and also christian anti-and judaism, and lib, you know, obama administration working with al qaeda giving them support, intelligence and weapons, you know, to take out what was left of a dave if i's government and it looks like it is going on in sir why, now. wouldn't that be iron fick we found out that our ambassador over there was actually killed by weapons supplied by us to al qaeda? it kind of reminds me of what was going on in the '9os when we sent our marines in there to distribute food and they were attacked by the identifying elements that were in that country and al qaeda was involved in that. >> host: we are short on time. glaes ahead. stephen? degrees there is no rid of the sinaean where that the u.s. would supply arms to al qaeda. certainly, that would not be in anyway in the u.s.'s interest. in fact, what i alluded to earlier, the criticism from the syrians who are fight is that the u.s. and ot
this issue he would not have been acting responsibly. the notion that the obama administration is attacking him for that, i think is just political distraction at its worst. megyn: you talked about the situation in syria and how we have been note any absent from that conflict. talked about how when there was a push for revolution in iran back in 2009, the president did not answer the call. does not resonate with the american people? it's the thought is should we have gotten involved in iran, should we have gotten involved in syria on the heels of being involved in iraq and stan were does that rest late with americans -- does that resonate with americans? >> the power america projects around the world has a direct impact on our life at home. the image and presentation that obama makes is of a weak and inattentive president. this is the argument that it's american strength that's provocative. what happens is whether it's the assad regime in syria or the ayatollahs in tehran. they look at a weak and inattentive president and recalibrate their policies to take advantage that weakness. those are
